Web Science Summer School – WWSSS’17

Description

The WSTNet Web Science Summer School 2017 will be held from July 1 to July 8, 2017. It will take place at the St. Petersburg, Russia.

 The Summer School is the next event of the Summer School series on Web Science. It is organised by the Web Science Trust and two Universities: HSE and ITMO.   The school will include lectures tackling major trends in respective subfields of Web science, practical tutorials focused on hands-on training in data processing, analysis and methods, and team work. As promotion of interdisciplinary communication and collaboration is a key goal of the school, the teams will be formed of students from different disciplines. They will work on specific tasks linked to the datasets provided, and will be mentored by the local instructors. All teams will be expected to present the results of their work on the last day of the school. In addition, each student will have to participate in the poster session with a poster about his/her current work. School participation is conditional upon poster submission, while obtaining the school certificate is conditional upon successful team work presentation. The school will include one day of cultural / social activities in the middle, while the last day will be opened with a lecture from a Russian internet industry speaker.
